at all. the obama administration had to gauge the diplomatic acrobatics to both acknowledge he runs right to peaceful nuclear energy and not acknowledge it at the same time. we approach these negotiations with a basic understanding. iran like any nation should be able to access peaceful nuclear energy. but because of its record of violating its obligations. iran must accept strict limitations on its nuclear programs that make it impossible to develop a nuclear weapon. the scope and role of iran's enrichment as is set forth in the language within this document says that iran's peaceful nuclear program is subject to a negotiation and to mutual agreement. despite the officials attempts to appease the hawks with punches are flying here looks like we tacitly agreed that they will be enriching for commercial purposes down the road so i think you gonna say on capitol hill again a bipartisan effort to try to make sure that this is not the falling rain. another set of marco rubio call that deal quote a blow to our allies in the region who are already concerned about america's commitment to their s

they make. and i think that's a good thing. >> you credit the obama administration for the auto sales for saving the auto sector? >> no. because frankly bush was the one who started to say the auto companies and was criticized for having done so. obama came in and continued it. >> i think it was two administrations working together. >> well, maybe. i'll give you that. but on the other hand, the automobile industry is vastly cyclical. none of you remember, but go back to the tesla story in the stock. you can't make it in the automotive industry. >> so nice of you to remember i don't remember that. >> i hope you don't but i do. not because it's not a good car, people say it is. but it takes so much money to plan in the automotive industry to live through the crashes. when you stop losing top line, it drops right to the bottom and costs a lot of money to play in the game. >> they've really restructured the auto companies. they're in much better shape than they were beforehand. >> so isn't the rest of the world in autos. they're all better, but it'll still be cyclical, becky. >> yeah. >>

, that's something he has to address. >> president obama is coming be in nur preer from republicans and democrats to fire members of his administration in the wake of that botched healthcare.gov rollout. do you that i is going to happen? >> this is a president that doesn't like to fire people. he nudges them out. if anyone is under the gun, it is folks at the health and human services. they have a few more weeks to make sure this website is working before anyone potentially loses their job. >> now the house extended a ban on plastic guns yesterday and the senate is expected to follow. why was this ban seemingly so easy to pass when restrictions on ak-47s and further background checks ran into such trouble even in the face of the terrible tragedy like the newtown shooting? >> the nra stayed quiet. they said nothing about this. that is partly, of course, the gun industry would prefer you buy a gun from than make one through a 3 d printer. so staying quiet and not taking a position is seen as favoring this bill. that makes it easier for republicans and democrats from gun friendly areas

to stop referring to them and exercise leadership by making a bold move on his own. has obama been similarly bold? >> jeff, i think obama's problem in a sense is that he is already been there a long time as presidential administrations go. he is the 44th president, and what always startles people is that there had been on the 18th of the 40 for president, only 18 who have been elected to a second term. that's pretty astonishing. and there have been only 13 who served eight years or more. franklin roosevelt served of course for 12, but three of them of course never got to the second term. lincoln was assassinated. mckinley was assassinated, and nixon was forced to resign. obama will be just the 14th president to have served eight years when he gets through his second term. but it's the second term curse. would we be sitting here talking in this way about kennedy if he had had a second term? i doubt it. he would have been a significant president but he would have also run into difficulty. what would you do about vietnam? it would depend the usual second term difficulties in the sense

obama turns his attention abroad. at the forum on middle east policy in washington, d.c. the president outlined the administration's plan to curb iran's nuclear program. he just wrapped up his comments a few minutes ago. >> ultimately my goal as president of the united states, something that i've said publicly and privately and shared everywhere i've gone, is to prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapon. but what i've also said is the best way for us to prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapon is for a comprehensive, verifiable diplomatic resolution. if at the end of six months it turns out that we can't make a deal, we're no worse off and in fact we have greater leverage with the international community to continue to apply sanctions and even strengthen them. >> we get more now from nbc white house correspondent kristen welker. kristen, this interim deal with iran really seemed to dominate the conversation today. what stood out to you? >> reporter: well, craig, i thought one of the most interesting moments this afternoon was when mr. sabon asked president obama why is this nuclear

, the mainstream media has been pretty tough on jay carney and this administration because, look, you can't avoid it. the fact is that the rollout of obama care has been a mess. the website was a disaster when it first came out. the promise, if you like your plan, you can keep your plan was clearly broken. and, you know, it's just too impossible to ignore. so, as i say, i think that horse is already out of the barn. >> so how are congressional democrats feeling this morning? are they still feeling kind of panicky as they have been the last couple of months about obama care? do they think things are getting better? >> well, clearly they are getting better. better is a relative word. the website is working a lot better in december than it was in october or november. i can't imagine that they're filled with great confidence about it, tuck er. on the other hand, all of these people in the senate were passed by a single vote. each one of those democrats up for re-election last year was a key, a single vote that decided whether or not obama care became a law or went down. they're kind of ono bomb ma ca
